Ashley River Bridge District:

Some of Charleston’s premiere residential neighborhoods are just minutes from the historic downtown area west of the Ashley River. The Crescent,Wappoo Heights, South Windermere and Moreland offer quiet, oak-shaded beauty near scenic marshes and waterways, and are less than five minutes drive to the heart of old Charleston.

These wonderful neighborhoods were developed in the 1920’s and 1930’s from an area known for many years as the “Pleasure Grove”- an expanse of gardens and tall trees between the Ashley River and Wappoo Creek. Throughout the mid- 19th century, crowds would come from the city by ferry boat to the Pleasure Grove for concerts by brass bands and saber exercises of local militia. A railroad station connecting Charleston and Savannah was added in 1860, and the old track bed is part of a bike and foot path “greenway” that extends for more than 10 miles in the West Ashley area today.

The first of a series of Ashley River bridges to the Pleasure Grove area was built in 1813, and most of the original traffic was cattle and carts filled with vegetables from outlying farms and plantations. The lone sign on the swing bridge built in 1887 read “walk your horses”, and the when earliest of the lift draw bridges currently crossing the Ashley River was opened with bascule towers and balusters in 1926, it was hailed as the “handsomest bridge in South Carolina”.

The scenic riverfront bluffs of Moreland that overlook the Charleston peninsula today bordered the original settlement of the city. The colony of Carolina was established in 1670 on the western banks of the Ashley River, where fertile high ground provided abundant crops and game. The city was moved across the river to the peninsula by 1680 to provide ships access to deeper water, but the West Ashley area chosen so many years ago remains a superb location.

The scenic U.S. Highway 61 corridor is dotted with national historic landmarks and world-famous destinations. Captivating Magnolia Plantation and Audubon Swamp Gardens features a dazzling display of color and wildlife; Middleton Place Plantation is famed  for its terraced colonial gardens and living history events;  and,  Drayton Hall National Trust Historic Site retains one of America’s finest examples of Georgian-Palladian architecture.
